Leonard Billotte

Leonard Billotte, 88, of Homer died from liver cancer on Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015, at South Peninsula Hospital.

Leonard was born to Russell and Ruth (Hurley) Billotte on Thursday, Nov. 15, 1926, in Clearfield, Pa.

Leonard moved to Alaska after proudly serving his country as a firefighter aboard the USS Saginaw in the U.S. Navy and attending the Arizona Institute of Aeronautics in Tucson. He first moved to Fairbanks in 1968 before moving to Anchorage in 1970, finally moving to Homer in 1976, where he worked as a set netter, served as mayor of Kachemak City and opened Kachemak Boots and Shoes.

He loved anything to do with aeronautics and planes, and always had a joke for everyone.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 65 years, Geraldine; parents, Russell and Ruth; and brother, Cleatus.

Leonard is survived by his daughter, Terry Billotte of Homer; son, Mike Billotte of Terra Haute, Ind., and granddaughters, Tina Sanders of Tucson, Ariz., and Ashliegh, Tiffany, Bear and Nikka Billotte, all of Terra Haute.
